EFCC uncovers N6.2billion Abacha loot in Channels Island



The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is on the trail of £22.5m (N6.18billion) loot which the late Head of State, Gen. Sani Abacha, is alleged to have stashed away on the tiny Island of Jersey, part of the Channels Island.

The anti-graft commission is also working to solve the riddle of the whereabouts of over $400million Abacha loot on the Island.

A source, who spoke in confidence, said: “We are probing the whereabouts of £22.5m (N6.18billion) loot of the late Head of State, Gen. Sani Abacha which was recovered from the Island of Jersey. The EFCC cannot locate where the money was remitted to.

“According to records, the late Head of State allegedly stashed the funds through a Lebanese called Bhojwani. But when the Office of the AGF was alerted by a whistleblower, the government of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan opened discussion with the Attorney-General of the Island of Jersey.

“The AG of the Island of Jersey cooperated fully with the government, leading to the repatriation of the £22.5m. We want to know where the money is; we need records from those involved”, the source stated.

There are indications that the EFCC may quiz a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mr. Damian Dodo, over the cash “any moment from now”, on the cash as he played a key role in securing the loot for the Federal Government.

The source said it was unclear if the Jonathan administration collected the $400million Abacha loot also stashed on Jersey Island.
